is to use the phrase that mitt romney use the in the debate last week, trickle down government. they're trying to discredit something they called trickle down government. it's up to joe biden tonight to begin to rebuild and to remind people that government is a cooperative exercise. people voted for social security, they voted for medicare, they voted for the people who built the modern state that we have. that's a big technical order and i think biden will be up to it. ryan has a much easier task in many ways. he can stand there and point to every negative economic statistic that's still out there, and there are plenty of them, and just repeat them over and over and over again. he's got a much easier strategic menu than joe biden does. biden's got to do a million things at once which is, frankly, not very easy. >> howard once back in the '80s robert downey jr. was on "saturday night live" doing a sketch playing a movie critic, i'll never forget, i saw this movie, it changed my life. i saw it again and it changed it back. if this race is kind of like that to where the whole movie, th

that the best course for the united states was to continue to help the libyans with their self-governance and pursue the people that killed our ambassador. i don't think you would hear anything different from barack obama on that or anybody in this administration in terms of what their goals are there. i think in terms of taking actions and not just having words against iran, i'm not sure that that's a whole lot different than what you see if our government now believe that had iran was about on to strike with a nuclear weapon anywhere in the world. >> jonathan, i think you're exactly right. the basic problem that romney runs up against here is the same problem with domestic policy whshgs it comes to economic policy. he really at a substantive level doesn't have much to say because the campaign strategy has basically been whether it's the economy or foreign policy, take any given issue and say obama has failed, and everything is terrible. here's some statistics and make a vague and broad promise of leadership, new leadership, bold leer looedship, a bold strategy on romney's part that will

that ordinary citizens should have a voice in their government. it shouldn't be just organized money, big business, the koch brothers, people like that. it should be ordinary people in their neighborhoods, in their workplaces, in their communities having a voice, and saul alinsky, who began his organizing career in the '30s and lived through the early '70s taught us all a lesson which many people are applying even today. >> professor, i had to notice that thereto weren't a whole lot of republicans on your list. i assume teddy roosevelt made the cut because of his great work in conservation, but this is a fairly partisan project, you'd admit. you have to be a progressive to be considered one of your top 100 americans, yes? >> well, except that back in the early 1900s many republicans were, in fact, progressives. hiram johnson was the progressive republican governor of california, earl warren, as i said earlier, was the conservative republican governor of california also, but he later became a progressive supreme court justice. the criteria for getting in my book was people who fought for a

this. we don't think the government should be in control of all of this. we want people to be in control. now, i'll just simply say this and i respectfully disagree with the vice president about what the american people are or aren't saying or qualified the speak on their behalf. >> you have an opinion. >> so we'll all representatives of the american people and do town hall meetings. we all talk and are engaged. >> all right. there's paul ryan. one other note on this. we have not seen an age gap this stark of two candidates in a national debate since 1988. lloyd benson and dan quayle. we all know how that went. not an oman but anyway. all talk today is focused on mitt romney's surge after last week's presidential debate. today, romney had a one-point lead in the real clear politics poll and pundits throwing suggestions in the ring of what president obama needs to do next week at the debate. here's a view of the past and the future. >> i had a different reaction to that first debate than a lot of people did. i mean, i saw -- i thought, wow. here's old moderate mitt. where
